First of all I would like to give a special thanks to everyone who provided support to the magazine for the launch issue last month. We’d like to thank all writers, contributors, photographers, advertisers, social media followers and most importantly you, the reader, for our very successful first issue!
We received a fantastic response from people around the area who have read the magazine. We have been greatly encouraged to hear the magazine has ventured as far away as Tennesee in the US. Specific comments about the magazine which we have received include the balance which has been achieved between advertisements and good quality content. As you may know, Consett Magazine is an independent publication which provides a voice for the people of Consett. If you have any concerns whatsoever or a newsworthy story please do not hesitate to get in touch with us as we’d love to hear from you.
We aim to build on the positive feedback received from the first issue by increasing page numbers and circulation, while continuing to provide interesting and relevant news stories. Other factors we hope to promote include jobs, culture, community interests and local businesses. We can only do this with the help of you, the readers of Consett Magazine!
Issue 2 contains a whole new batch of interesting reads; ranging from recent plans for Consett FC’s new sports ground to a piece on local rap star Ego Trip.
